Parent and child conflicts can occur for many reasons. There is a generation gap between parents and children. Parents should understand the psychology of today’s children and children should understand that their parents are their caretakers and well-wishers and are way more capable and insightful.
As a child, you must not be obdurate and rigid while asking for something and should try to respect what their parents say. If you really think that they are being over indulging and not much practical, you should talk to them patiently and make them understand what do you think and why! I am sure if things are done in the right manner, you will get a way out. Sometimes when they do not say a yes, in spite of your attempts, you should embrace them. They sure want the best for you.
As a parent, we must uphold the fact that our child has started thinking and having their own opinions which you must not try to repudiate instantly and must not impose our thoughts onto them. They may have different viewpoint on different things which must be respected and given enough attention to. They have started taking on the world and it is very important for them to develop their wisdom power. However, you must be vigilant not to allow them something just because you love them. You have to say a NO when you know what they are demanding is not right. “Let’s raise children who won’t have to recover from their childhoods.”
